Fabinho reveals Liverpool best place for him to grow; Thiago helping

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho admits he is in the best place to grow as a player and person.

The Brazilian recently put pen to paper on a new five-year contract to commit himself to the Anfield club.

On the eve of the new Premier League season, Fabinho spoke about his personal ambitions and the relationship he enjoys with midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

He said: "I don't want to stop; I want to always grow, to try to be better," he says.

"Sometimes this is natural when you play with a new player, like Thiago (Alcantara) for example. I learn new things with him naturally, through training days and games.

"I didn't play often as a midfielder last season, but when I did I was happy with my performance.

"Liverpool is the best place for me. We have a great team and one of the best managers in the world, the best conditions to play football.

"I am happy for Trent (Alexander-Arnold) and Ali (Becker) to be staying as well. We are still young, so to have a new deal is really important, and for the club as well."
